How To Backup Apps With Titanium Backup On Android

Reinstalling all the apps after changing a custom ROM can be an annoying task. If you’re the one who’s finding a solution to this, then you’ve arrived at the correct place. In this post, I’ll show you how backup and restore all the apps and data with Titanium Backup App available on Google Play Store.

One thing to keep in mind before proceeding is Titanium Backup application is available for rooted devices only. So make sure you’ve got superuser rights on the device.

What is Titanium Backup?

Titanium Backup is an Android application that helps you to backup up all your mobile apps and data. Hence, saving you from a tedious task of reinstalling them one by one while switching a custom ROM or resetting a device. Moreover, it offers a complete restore of all the apps including the previous/old settings.

As high authority system rights are required to perform a batch backup and restore, the app is only available on rooted devices. Titanium Backup comes with both free and PRO versions. Of course, the pro version has additional features like multiple backups per app, Backup/Restore SMS, MMS, calls, bookmarks, Wi-Fi AP as XML, and more. But apparently the free version gets the job done most of the time.

Key Features

  • Batch backup.
  • Backup apps with default settings.
  • Backup SMS, Calls log, and contacts.
  • Apps Freezer.
  • Encryption.
